. in to be tried as the enemy enemy, to in the military court, why did the obama administration make this choice? >> there are two aspects with the enemy come back and. first of all, he is the united states citizen committee to crimen u.s. soil so he cannot be tried in a military tribunal for that reason. the other way he could be tried is if there is indisputable evidence so we have heard reports it has to be clear and convincing evidence he has ties and that the federal government does not believe they are associated. lou: the most recent reports are they are investigating very diligently that tragic incident. the obama administration says they cannot try in an american court because he is an american citizen with a king kill him with a missile fired from a drone despite that he is. square that up. >> this really comes down to a political debate. republicans verses democrats and if you take it from a completely different perspective, the government says we can try him in a federal court and let him have his u.s. constitutional rights he is a citizen. the you we will be so good to prosecute and

is were tried in civilian courts. president obama back in 2009 said he no longer wanted to use the term enemy combatants. it's almost been removed from this administration's vocabulary even though we've heard it quite recently. we've heard this when there is a terrorist blot from conservative. they want to be sure that they're tried as an enemy combatant. not this time, and like everyone has been saying the case against this guy is so significant that they shouldn't have a hard time putting him away. >> cenk: joe, let's do it right. where they said, i didn't mirandaize him right away, and i used this public safety exception. but when the time had come, we're going to trial him in trials so liberals get off my back. >> the cynical view is is that's exactly what happened, but none of us are cynics. >> cenk: no, no. >> one thing you have to keep in mind. first, this is what conservatives do. the whole notion that this guy is some scary dude that we have to bring the full force of the law against him. this is what this arms argument does. it says that we as the united states government has
the obama administration's argument that it was a state secret. the court ordered the cia to respond to freedom of information requests about targeted killing. a few days later, three obama officials told the daily beast that the drone program will move from the cia to the defense department. that could increase accountability and transparency. the president also responded by saying this at the state of the union. >> i will continue to engage congress to ensure not only that our targeting, detention and prosecution of terrorists remains consistent with our laws and system of checks and balances. but that our efforts are even more transparent to the american people and to the world. >> but it looks like that effort is not getting very far. the administration refused to even send a witness to testify and answer questions at today's hearings. the chair of the hearing told us the legal and policy questions surrounded targeted killings require a public debate. once again, it looks like a debate the white house would rather skip. joining us now to discuss the government's obligation to def

in moving forward in civilian court, the obama administration treated the efforts of certain vocal republicans to troll the president into engaging in a lawless departure from established precedent as exactly that, as trolling on and a half of a ridiculous and illegal proposition. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist under u.s. law. united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions. this is absolutely the right way to go and the appropriate way to go. and when it comes to united states citizens, it is against the law to try them in military commissions. >> and it matters that the white house is treating the idea of holding an american citizen outside of the american legal system as what it is, which is crazy and unacceptable. and it matters that appears to be where americans stand on the issue too. when asked just last week in the midst of the aftermath of the boston bombing, with the images and videos of the horror there, the top of everyone's mind, which worries you more, the government will not go far enough to investigat
in court. it will be used to protect us. so i'm hoping the obama administration will look at him as a potential enemy combatant, allow the intelligence community access to him without a lawyer, find out what he knows about terrorist organizations that may be coming our way. that, to me, is the primary goal in the coming weeks here. >> bret: i'm going to follow up on that. he was not given his miranda rights in the public safety exception. i want to talk more about that, but i want to follow up on the plot thickens, what you started with. you said you talked to the f.b.i. director. do you believe, knowing what you know, that there are more people involved? >> i think it is too early to make that decision, but the more we know about these two guys, the more it looks like they're moving parts here. but the reason i'm so insistent that we have time, if you read him his miranda rights, the public safety exception is a exception that's really not a terrorist doctrine. as the plot things, you might could hold him without miranda worns for two or three days, maybe four. under the law of
here in the u.s. >> you're saying that this person definitively would be tried in a federal court but is it not possible that the obama administration unlikely but possible that they would choose to designate him an enemy combatant prosecute him in military court? >> to get into that discussion now is to get way ahead of the situation and a lot of speculation and conjecture. cases like this have been made countless times. you look at the world trade center case, many other cases have been done successfully here through our criminal justice system and my guess is that is the way it is going on this one as well. >> thank you so much. david kelley, i appreciate it. we're just learning that president obama will give a statement on the failed gun control amendment that will be in the rose garden at 5:30 p.m. eastern. we'll be right back.

received from the federal people that senator wicker and president obama received. with that being said, the letter that we received at justice court and the content has now, after this preliminary test, has been sent to the same laboratory group of people that are finalizing and analyzing the two letters that the federal people received. we will be waiting for official results. i cannot release those until i get them. i can save you that question now. this led us to the next step, which the real reason that i think you are here is the federal people was giving us information this morning of a person of possible interest that could possibly be in our area, is what they were doing here. and we were assisting them with this information and the possible location of this individual. it led us down several paths. it led us to several different leads that we assisted them on. they were, much like us, concerned that the letter that we received and the two letters that they had, there is a great possibility that this was sent from the same individual or group of individuals. at that point the i
judges in our federal courts system. so i think the obama administration wisely said well, we have this existing criminal justice system. it's worked really well. it's detained and incarcerated hundreds of terrorists. why reinvent the wheel when we have something that works really well. >> the breaking news that we had in this case this hour, at least into the investigation of this case this hour is that a senior government official told nbc news tonight that in the initial interrogation at the hospital, the suspect said that he and his brother learned bomb-merriaking the internet. they were not in touch with any terrorist groups overseas, and that they were motivated by religious fervor. i don't know where they learned bomb-making on the internet, and i don't know why they came to believe that religious fervor should equal bombing the boston marathon. but does the fact that the u.s. government says we are at war with al qaeda factor into this case at all given what we know about this case thus far? >> well, not as of yet. it may turn out to be that they are members of al qaeda or

: the senate has confirmed president obama's nominations for cabinet and circuit court but not his district court nominations more rapidly than it did those of president george w. bush or president clinton. in 2013 the senate changed its rules to speed up consideration of those district judge nominations. in the history of the senate -- of course, this includes president obama -- no cabinet member, unless you count john bolton's nominations by george w. bush to be the u.n. ambassador -- and no district judge has ever been denied his or her seat because of a filibuster; that is, a failed cloture vote. and in the history of the senate, only seven circuit judge nominees have been denied their seats by a filibuster. five of george w. bush's nominees and two of president obama's nominees. so i ask consent to put in the record this summary of president obama's nominations, along with an article from "the washington post" that points out that president obama's nominees have been confirmed more rapidly than those of the last three presidents in his first term. i ask consent to put that in the recor

of the proceedings. what's your assessment, jeff, of the initial hearing and the fact that the obama administration decided to try him in civilian court rather than as an enemy combatant in a military tribune jal? >> i think the military tribunal was a complete nonstarter. there has never been an american citizen arrested on american soil charged in a military tribunal. it's just simply never going to happen. it certainly didn't happen in the bush administration, didn't happen in the obama administration, so that was never -- that's just not -- it's irrelevant at this point. now the case is under way. the fact that he was well enough to be arraigned on the complaint means now that the government will move to present this case in the grand jury, probably within a month there will be an indictment, and then the case will move to a federal district court. at that point, i expect things will slow down quite a bit. i would be surprised, given the magnitude and complexity of this case, that there could be a trial inside of a year, but at least now the process is under way. >> juliette, from a law enforce

. he is expected to spend at least two weeks under house arrest before appearing in court. let's return to our stock -- our top story -- as details emerged on the identities, investigators and the public are trying to understand why they carried out the attacks. president obama said this -- >> obviously, tonight there are many unanswered questions. among them, why did young men who grew up and studied here as part of our communities and our country resort to such violence? how did they plan and carry out these attacks? did they receive any help? >> to discuss the threat of harm, terrorists in the that is states, i'm joined by an international security analyst and former u.s. intelligence officer. he joins us from london. recording ofou a mother has been saying to the media. me that he told would be on the side of jihad. what ever they are talking about, he is a loser. my son would never do this. >> the mother said there that tamrqaln would never be on the side of jihad and would never do this. she says it is a set up. what you make of that? >> it is a mother defended her child. clearly,
of the united states has been tried in a united states criminal court, in a federal district court. that's what president bush did. that's what president obama did and this fellow is an american citizen. it's far from clear that there's any law that would allow him to be tried as an enemy combatant. this is a procedure we know works. people get tried in criminal courts every day. the combatant laws we don't know that one can be successfully conducted. that's lost in a mar ras in guantanamo bay. this case will take a long time, be expensive and complicated but he's going to trial and there's going to be a verdict. we know that. >> jeff, thank you very much. fran, julia, as well. appreciate it. follow me on twitte twitter @andersoncooper. what do you think? should he be charged in a criminal court opposed to an enemy combatant? >>> and we will dig in to the case. the older suspect spent last year in parts of dagestan and chechnya. and the older suspect's widow. what we know about her and their relationship and more importantly what the fbi wants to know from her tonight. >>> later, my interview w
magistrate at his bed side with a court-appointed attorney, a public defender. this is moot as the obama administration has made its decision. is lindsey graham on sound legal ground, saying he should be tried in a civilian court, but held and questioned as an enemy combatant? >> i think the only fair answer to that question is we don't know. because it's never been done before in american history to have some sort of hybrid combatant and criminal proceeding. we do know from jake tapper's reporting, there was an interrogation of tsavraev. and he did disclose his position that there was no broader conspiracy here. just him and his pressure. it seems like the justice department and the fbi have done the kind of interrogation that at least -- that lindsey graham seems to want to have been done, perhaps not as extensive as it might have been. but there was a premiranda interrogation and authorities can work with that, at least now going forward. >> i think that's a fair point. lindsey graham and others will say it wasn't enough. not necessarily just 48 hours of vergation, but days and days i
. markey. the obama administration has chosen to prosecute the surviving suspect in the bombings in the federal court system. instead of before a military tribunal as an enemy combatant were where they have fewer constitutional protections. did they do the right thing? 90 seconds, sir. >> yeah, i believe that president obama and his justice department are completely committed to ensuring that case. is done in this we all heard president obama last week. he said there is a part of boston in him. he said that justice would be done in this case. if in the opinion of president obama and his justice department, the proper place for prosecution is here in the federal district court system of the state of massachusetts, i believe that the court system here in massachusetts can provide that kind of a venue in order to hear this case. so i defer to president obama. i defer to his justice department if in their judgment this is the proper place in order to conduct that trial. >> thank you, sir. mr. lynch, 90 seconds. >> john, i think that we do have sufficient laws in our iminal system to
, and the obama administration announcing he will be tried in a civilian court. with us now, two former federal prosecutors, lis wiehl, doug burns is a criminal defense attorney. we'll get to all that in a minute. but i also want to talk about catherine russell. she is the wife of the now-dead tam p land star navy. she has, apparently -- well, he's the statement from her attorney, a guy named deluca, says she is doing everything she can to assist with the investigation. everything except, apparently, speaking to federal investigators, because at last report she hadn't even talked to them yet. >> right. well, her lawyer -- and i'm sure doug will agree with me -- he's representing her, trying to make sure she gets immunity. whatever she says they cannot charge her with anything, they cannot -- anything they get from her cannot be brought back to her. that's the kind of the defense lawyer's going to work on right now for her. >> in other words, they go in, and the conundrum is, wait a minute, how can i tell them information, so they sign what's called a queen for a day protection. nothing you say
, dzhokhar, an american citizen. will be given full rights and tried in civilian court. yesterday press secretary jay carney made clear where president obama differs from his predecessor. >> he will not be treated as an enemy combatant. we will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice. under u.s. law, united states citizens cannot be tried in military commissions. >> historically speaking, foreign policy tends to either stain or illuminate a president's legacy. time will tell which foreign policy position will define the obama years. joining us to discuss from washington is former assistant secretary of state and professor at george washington university, professor pj crowley. professor, thank you for joining us. >> hello. >> pj as we talk about the legacy of the obama doctrine, vis-a-vis our war on terrorists drones. the attacks were motivated to do what they did by the wars in iraq and afghanistan. i'll quote a little bit from that story. the 19-year-old suspect in the boston marathon bombings has told interrogators that the american wars in iraq and afghanistan
kurtis was supposed to appear in court today on charges he sent threatening letters to president obama and other officials but the hearing was canceled abruptly and kurtis was released. his attorney says the case has not been dismissed but she is pushing to get the charges dropped saying her client has been set up. to make all of this even more complicated we're also following reports of yet another suspicious letter. this latest one was found at a mail facility at bolling airforce base in maryland. according to the fbi the letter is being tested for a potential biotoxin. leonard cole is a bioterrorism and terror medicine expert. he joins us now live from new york. dr. cole, investigators are calling it a biotoxin. other than ricin what other sorts of chemicals could they be testing for? >> for this particular mix i'm not sure. there are numerous chemicals as well as potential biological agents. ricin is technically a toxin. it is a product of a biological agent, namely the castor plant or bean. there is some memory of course of what happened soon after 9/11 when anthrax spores were se
a statement saying'' mack wheat remaining under threat from radical islam we hope the obama administration seriously considered the enemy combat and option. what that means is this suspect it could go to the military court system but the president signaled the opposite to read between the lines that he believes what distinguishes america is the several civilian court system to uphold our values. he is getting pressure to name him the enemy combat in to that with the two other things he is signaling if he survives go through the civilian court system. >> it appears he will@ survive for cut end henry live. the last time we heard from the authorities at the 6:00 eastern time the news was not good at all and they told the people they cannot find a second suspect and they were lifting the shelter employs order but there were a lot of questions were the investigation was going bad minutes later there was the call of the suspect. are corresponded has the news and the end of this was incredibly tends. >> and it happened right here this building right after those state troopers this is where it fin
